55m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A good 1st pitch is spoilt by the grotty finish to the 2nd one.
1) 4c, 20m. Swarm up onto the flake containing the large tree. Continue up and left, mantelshelf into the cracks then up these to reach a small but good stance below the notch in the roof.
2) 4c, 35m. Climb the chimney and groove above then traverse off right over grass and grot to a finish up Babylon's top groove. © Rockfax

EPIC. John didn't like the look of top pitch so I lead it. Loose and scary, traversed off left ended up climbing vertical ivy. Then couldn't here John so tied him off on a tree so I could communicate to no luck. A women ended up running up and phoning her friend to communicate. At this point police and mountain rescue had been phoned. Luckily they never turned up we got down safe.

Messy, vegetated and rubbish on the second pitch. Do yourself a favour and climb something else.

1 pitch. Had a bit of an epic. Very vegetated, started raining quite heavily half way up, slipped on wet holds passing the prow. As to be expected rope drag got ridiculous, dragged myself along the traverse to reach a tree about 3m away from the top. Everything was dripping wet and slippery as, made a belay on the tree and some ornamental pieces of gear, lowered second down and abbed off the apparently solid tree. Would not recommend; certainly the worst VS I've done here so far.

2nd pitch. Thoughtful choss.

Lead P1. Wouldn't describe it as clasic. The top is like the hanging gardens..

P1: Green and damp. Some interesting climbing. P2/3: Good climbing esp. start of P2, some loose rock. Top involved holding onto ivy to finish. Good route (poss. spicy for a VS leader) could do with more traffic/a clean up.

Finished direct. Good and sustained route.

lead in one long pitch and continued up the groove, rather than traverse of right -this was more exciting than i expected and hard for 4c

Pleasant up until the choss. Just abseil from the treadthrough and ignore the top.

To be strictly correct, I lead the horrible vegetated top out, nice one Tom!
